Posted Apr 11, 2019
2/5 Pet Sematary (2019) Cameron Frew There's something wrong when you walk out of a film as bleak, sobering and downright hopeless as Pet Sematary, and the response is a shrug à la Partridge. EDIT

Posted Jan 24, 2019
2/5 Glass (2019) Cameron Frew Shyamalan's final entry in his unlikely cinematic universe is a Split sequel with Unbreakable filling; but what's the point if none of it makes sense? EDIT

Posted Dec 11, 2018

Posted Dec 6, 2018

Posted Nov 18, 2018

Posted Oct 31, 2018
